Eve-ville 100 – The Final Training

I failed to mention the part about how I’d taken 10 days off of training (other than the 14er).  I called coach Steve panicking and not having the least bit of clue how to pick back up.  After 10 days off, I just picked right back up where I left off and followed the schedule he gave me.  This may only be the 2nd time in my life I’ve followed 100% what a coach said.  Except, I added one thing.  I...

Leadwoman – August Days Before the 100 MTB

Sometime in May or June, I started getting invited to my bestie’s 40th birthday in Florida the weekend before Leadville MTB.  I completely ignored all the invites and fun being planned because there was no way I was going.  I watched all the posts in the birthday group for months moping around that I was going to miss it.  As it got closer, it was almost like I needed to go.  I needed to get away. ...

Leadwoman – Pedernales Falls 60k (6/22/19)

The following weekend, I headed down to Austin with the girls to race and stay with Coach Steve and his wife Kat again.  We talked a lot that weekend about what the rest of training should be like.  I was supposed to race a night race that weekend. LP was going to have to drive down after work that Saturday to come get the girls from the race and take them back to Steve and Kat’s.  But, Uncle Steve...
